Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has told Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi he is on the road to recovery following a shoulder injury in the Champions League final.
Salah, who hit a stunning 44 goals for Liverpool last season in all competitions, was forced out of the May 26 Champions League final in tears clutching his left shoulder after colliding with Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos.
"The President was reassured on the health condition of the player 'Mohamed Salah', who affirmed that his condition is improving notably and that he is on his way to recovery, god willing," presidency spokesman Bassam Radi said on Saturday.
Salah has undergone treatment in Valencia, Spain, in the hope of playing a role in Egypt's first appearance in the World Cup since 1990.
He was included in the Egypt squad announced on Monday.
The Pharaohs will hold their final training session in Egypt on Saturday night in Cairo before they travel to Russia on Sunday.
On May 30, the Egypt football federation said Salah would be out for no more than three weeks, meaning he could miss Egypt's opening World Cup Group A game against Uruguay on June 15.
Egypt will then face Russia on June 19 and Saudi Arabia on June 25.
